If you’ve been on the fence about whether or not LEGO Dimensions is something you should be interested in, a new set of expansion packs just might convince you to drop some cash on the forthcoming video game.
Ghostbusters expansion packs have jut been revealed, and they include LEGO versions of characters that weren’t included in the official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 LEGO set that was released awhile back, including Slimer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.

Back in June, fans were cautiously optimistic about Lexus introducing a new device called Slide, which they purported to be a working hoverboard, just in time to meet the deadline set in place by Back to the Future Part II. At the time we didn’t know how legitimate this project was, but now we have a much closer look at the very real hoverboard, and it’s pretty slick.
Lexus has just unveiled a batch of videos showing the hoverboard in action, and there’s even an entire hoverpark that it can be used in where professional skateboarders have got pretty good at riding it.

Okay, so I think we’ve probably all owned the Star Wars movies (or at very least, the original Star Wars trilogy) a handful of times on different platforms and formats. George Lucas was always good about adding something new that we had to have, “forcing” us to rebut the series again. And now that the films are out of Lucas’ hands, the cycle is still happening. In April, Disney released the Star Wars films on digital platforms in HD with new special features (and yes, I bought the collection yet again on Apple TV).
Today, Walt Disney Studios, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox announced that they will release the six films as commemorative Blu-ray steelbooks on November 10th 2015. Previously the series was only available on Blu-ray in trilogy or series collections, and not individually. Also they will also be rereleasing Star Wars: The Complete Saga in newly repackaged artwork on October 13th. Hit the jump to check out all of the new Star Wars steelbooks covers and learn more.

Two of my favorite pop culture artists are gearing up to release prints based on two of the best films released over the last year.

Find out details on how you can obtain both of these prints, and see the artwork in high resolution, after the jump.

Even though the newest edition of Grand Theft Auto is always something that gets people excited, like any other video game, it gets old after awhile. Sometimes not even expansion packs can make it much more exciting.
However, there are gamers out there who are much more skilled with computers than the average gamer, and they craft some pretty awesome mods to be thrown into a game like Grand Theft Auto V. For example, JulioNIB, who has been creating mods for the video game franchise for a few years now, has been working in an Iron Man suit that allows you to fly around Los Santos, shooting repulsor beams from the character’s hands and chest.

If you’re a frequent reader of SlashFilm, you know that we love LEGO, and we love even more when the building block toy gets blended with our favorite films. Whether it’s an official Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set or a custom Jurassic Park visitor center, we like seeing the building blocks come together to make things from the movies we love.
Therefore, our interest is piqued by the forthcoming video game LEGO Dimensions, a new collectible figure video game which combines the likes of Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future, Batman (and other DC Comics heroes), The LEGO Movie, Ninjago and even The Wizard of Oz.
And now a new trailer has arrived online, showing the story behind how all these different franchises came to be mixed up with each other. But the real highlight is seeing Batman fight another Batman. Watch the LEGO Dimensions trailer after the jump! Read More »
